Work in Progess Polka Dot Tree and Singapore Food


I like balloon shape trees. This is another one with polka dots and sunflowers. I just finished till this point. I am not sure what is the next for it. I'll think about it and see what I can do with it later.

My elder daughter came back from USA to spend the winter holiday at home. I try to learn some new dishes to cook some good food for the family. Nothing beats a delicious dinner.

I am lucky it is easier now days to be a good mother. I can buy some mixed ingredient from the supermarket to cook meat, fish or vegetables. For example, you can cook chilly crab easily with mixed sources and you don't have to buy each individual ingredient and prepare yourself. You just need to cut the crab, put some oil and put the mixed ingredient and cook till the crab is ready.

There are ready sources for all those famous Singapore food such as Malay beef Rendang, Chicken Curry and Lakasa. Without these ready packet of ingredient, you may need to spend whole day to prepare them because you have to buy all ingredients, wash, cut them and mix them to become paste.

I actually like it like this too... I know you could try with a dark, or red background so the drawing springs out... or pastels to fuse it all together. But something sober and a bit...modern is also nice.

That crab sounds delicious! I ussually don't buy pre made stuff but then again italian or spanish food -which is mainly what I cook- do not demand tons of ingredients.
Have a nice time with your daughter!

Marian, thanks for the suggestions. Sometime, we may have a join work. Haha...

It is really hard for me who is Chinese to make Indian or Malay food. But with the ready mixed ingredients, I can make those food easily. I know it is good and healthier to make your own, but there is no way for me to do it because it is too difficult.

I love Italian food and buy the ready ones as well such as pasta sources.

I have never had Singapore food, but if it has crab and vegetables, that sounds good to me!
